One-day Energy Fast

Since yesterday I got the most amazing fruits and vegetables from Temecula Farmers market and I just read The Juice Fasting Bible: Discover the power of all-juice diets to restore good health, lose weight and increase vitality, I have decided to give a try.

This morning after I wake up I had 2 glasses of water with organic pressed lemon.

Then I meditate. Then I juiced: 1 orange,1 red plums, a piece of fresh Ginger root, 1 cup of red grapes, 1 pear and one banana.

The taste is very, very good.

Pears : Vitamins B and C, Calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Provide quick energy boost.

Oranges: Very high vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, natural antibiotic, powerful antioxidant, give quick energy boost.

Ginger root: Vitamin C, Copper, Iron, Calcium, zinc, magnesium.

Grapes: Vitamin B and c and beta carotene. Iron, potasium, calcium. Provide a quick energy boost.

Banana: Vitamins B and C, Calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Plums: Vitamin C and beta carotene, calcium, iron

For Lunch and dinner I will have 1 apple, 1 tomato, 2 carrots, 5 spinach leaves, 1 /2 onion,...juice Ok we will see about the onion.

Today I will join the Yoga and Ayurveda Workshop on the 7 chakras hosted by Arun Deva.

This is new for me. Never done any kind of workshop like that, but I am pleased to dedicate a day to by body and soul, away from my daily routine, no kids, no husband. Only me my juices, my water and my 7 chakras.

Detox day # 3

It has been a rough and tough day regarding my Detox diet. This morning I had my Detox cup of tea but I was starving. I undulged some crispy warm bread and butter. I had Organic grapes for my morning snack and Zola Brazilian superfruit juice.
For lunch I had 3 pretzels and organic grapes, 1 apple and Soy milk
Let's see how the rest of the day will be. I am not sure my body likes it! I had some cramps this morning...
The worst? I weighted myself and I gained a little bit less than 1/2 pound...not a big deal but how is it possible I am almost starving myself tryinng to avoid any carb, bread, pasta....

Detox day # 2

Here I am. Detox/ cleansing Day 2. No coffee. Only water, Acai juice and Detox Yogi Tea. For breakfast I got Golean cereals with fresh strawberries and organic Soy milk. But it was not enough and I needed something around 10 am. I got a peanutbutter sandwich with Acai juice. For lunch fresh fruits, rice crackers. It is tough. Just a little tough. By I am thinking about heaviest husband had Cheese enchiladas with organic avocado and apple sauce. Actually yes organic apple sauce is a good idea for snack. I will get some with my Detox tea. Tonight we will have Stuffed zuchinis ( zuchinis, ricotta cheese and cheddar cheese).. not really a detox menu. But still good. No meat since last Friday!!!

Autumn's Resolutions

OK this is not new year's resolution.... I am starting a little early this year since I never can follow my resolutions.
Today is the first day of Fall-Autumn. I love this season even if in Southern California the change of season is not that obvious. Yet.
Anyway, yesterday in order to get prepared I skipped the Frecnh fries-steak lunch. And I had Mung beans with Organic Jasmine rice. It was really good. Instead of coffee I drank Roobios tea....

Today Monday. No Coffee but Detox tea from Yogi tea, Go lean cereals. For lunch I had more mung beans with rice, then a banana then Rice Crackers.
For diner I will have steamed Brocolis with wild caught fish.

My friend Jocelyne came to help me cleaning up and organizing the house.
We have done the Laundry room, kids clothes cabinets, linen cabinets.
I feel good. Oh Yes I forgot while the kids were sleeping early this morning I did some yoga too!
See you tommorrow.

No dairy today and not meat so far....

Back to shape

This is almost September. My kids will start a new School program in the morning and it will be perfect for me to get in shape.

At the local Library I found a great book Body for Life. This is great inspiration about anew "you".

You have challenges that you can post online. The next round is September 3, 2008. In 12 weeks you do weight training, aerobics, 6 meals a day...

Right now I am not sure I will go for the Online challenge... but I am thinking of it.

Once and if I start, I will post my progress on this blog.

A bientot!

How do you survive Flu stomach?

Everybody has been sick this week. Everybody except Mylself. I have no idea how and why I did not contract it. One afternoon I was feeling dazzy and weak and my stomach was not feeling good either. But I managed it with a lot of cooked rice, no milk, bread, crackers, applesauce and I even went to my Yoga class yesterday. Even If I did not feel like it. The result? This morning I am feeling almost myself again.
The best tip ever: wash your hands 1000 times a day! I survived! YEAH.
